Seems like ASUS is focusing heavily on the budget market segment this year, continuing the trend that began a couple of years ago. A new smartphone, known as the ZenFone 3 Go has leaked out in a pretty official fashion, revealing most of the hardware specifications of the device.
The highlight here is the presence of a front facing “soft” LED flash for that added illumination in low light situations. The company is using a moderate 5MP camera on the front, though. Interestingly, the company hasn’t swayed too much from the ZenFone 3 design language, which is apparent from this leak.
The rest of the hardware specifications are nothing to write home about, which is to be expected considering the kind of market that ASUS wants to target here. It’s a pretty exciting device, but that will depend heavily on the price tag that ASUS will assign to this particular smartphone.
The handset is using the quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor, which has featured in a handful of budget devices from 2016. There’s no word on the Android version it’s running, but since it’s a new device, we can expect it to feature Android 7.0 Marshmallow.
